In this talk, I will talk about the BBC’s microbit, a small device that features a minimalist processor with 16kB of RAM. These devices are usually for seasoned developers with soldering irons and oscilloscopes; this time, however, the device targets a million kids between ages 11 and 12 with no prior experience. The talk will illustrate how we brought the complexity down, the programming model we offer, the learning choices we made, and will hopefully feature a demo if I manage to get my board working!
